Would second that, too ;)
QExtMdi would be a good base for the "kmdi lib" or how ever we call it. It 
perhaps needs some cleanups and enhancements to support splitting and 
(perhaps) IDEA style mdi modes, too, but better start with something actually 
working allready since some years than with nothing.
We could cleanup it a bit, rename it to something which would fit better with 
the rest of the kdelibs naming scheme and put it experminental in kdelibs for 
3.2 and add it to the public libs at least for 4.0 after it's cleanup is 
completed and it's interfaces have stabilizied if it won't be ready for 3.2, 
or ?
